    Has anybody been watching Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl? If so, what did you think of the last seasons?

    I've had mixed feelings about them this year.

    *Spoilers to follow.*

    Arrow started off really well, but then Diaz turned out to be a shite villain, and he didn't even get killed at the end, so we'll have to put up with more of him in the next season. Oliver has gone to prison, surrounded by all the bad guys he put away, so that should be interesting.

    The Flash thankfully did not have an evil speedster this year. I don't think I could have handled another on of them. The villain's wife turned out to be more interesting than him. I really don't like the Elongated Man, he's like a young Jim Carrey tribute act. And I don't like how they keep trying to make Iris so important.

    Legends of Tomorrow has embraced its own silliness and become more and more over the top, which is great. The giant Beebo was predictable, but Rory has had some of his greatest comedy moments this year, he's definitely been one of the strong points for the DC shows. I wisht hey would stop under-powering Ray Palmer, though. I don't think there was one episode where he didn't get knocked out - if there was, he was probably unconscious all the way through it.

    Supergirl became so dreary. The first half of the season was so morbid, I found myself watching Arrow - normally the darkest of the DC shows - to cheer myself up after watching Supergirl. Things did start to improve during the second half of the season, I like Brainy. I also like how they dealt with the dementia. But the finale was just a mess and I didn't feel anything for what the characters were going through. I did not like the actress playing Kara's mother.

    One thing these shows need to stop doing is referencing Star Wars every two minutes. Stick to your own universe, guys.

    I watch them. After last season's ending it was Arrow I was looking forward to the most but I found it lacking. The conflict between Oliver and his team has been done before. Sadly I think this season it missed the mark.

    Nice not to have a speedster again this season of Flash but found the pacing a but slow. Didn't mind elongated man after a while but the best story line was those concerning Killer Frost and I hope she comes back. Sadly though overall the season never got up to speed.

    Legends was great. Sara is my favourite character. Love having Constantine in it and love he will be a regular next season. Like that it was light comedy with a few bits of seriousness through in but really need to give Damion Dark a rest now. Like this season but don't have a pun to finish this sentence.

    Overall Supergirl was my favorite series this time. Loved the mid season cliff hanger.

    It was great to have Deathstroke around this season in Arrow, but I've heard he won't likely be back any more because of the DC movies bringing Deathstroke into their universe, and the movies and TV shows don't like to share which is why we lost awesome characters like Deadshot and Amanda Waller.

    It was nice to have Roy Harper back for a bit as well. I'm hoping we get to see whatever quest he's gone on with Nyssa and Theia. It sounds a lot more interesting than what the rest of the crew got up to this season.

    I was really excited by the Flash episode where they are trying to stop the bomb from exploding in Flash time. It just sucks that it ended up being Iris who somehow managed to save the day with one of her speeches or something, I can't remember how it ended, but they had Jessie Quick and Garrick there and they both took off without really doing anything.
    Oh, I thought the Bad Luck girl was very sweet as well. I enjoyed the episode where Barry got imprisoned with the metahumans he put in prison. It seems like Oliver is going to be in a similar situation himself.

    I actually enjoyed Damien Dhark in Legends this season. The previous season with him paired up with Merlin was terrible, but I thought it was much more interesting seeing him paired up with his daughter. And I enjoyed the gag with the dating app where they keep saying "hey it is more intuitive to swipe up and down instead of left and right!" And I like that Wally has joined the team. It's nice to see him becoming his own man.

    Supergirl needs to bring back Cat Grant. And get rid of Guardian.

    Just realised I never really finished my post as I had to get back to work. Was talking about how Supergirl was my favourite this year, not surprising given the outfit I'm wearing. But yeah Alex is a great character and wish her and Maggie had stayed together as I thought the storyline was good. Was initially disappointed over Mon-El being back as I felt he brought the last season down but he was much better this time.

    I like mon el and his little legion of superheroes. I also liked seeing him in a superhero suit finally (got sick of him wearing either normal clothes or the DEO jumpsuit in season 2)

    One thing I didn't get was in the episode with Maggie's dad - he mentioned that "they're are building a wall" to keep the Mexicans out. I understand that these shows are openly anti-Trump and everything, but on Supergirl's Earth, the American president is an alien refugee whom Supergirl herself voted for, so why did they even bring that reference into it?
